Solar Living Institute

Rebuilding from the October wildfires? Are you sure you are building the very best possible house? Hundreds of fire survivor families are now facing important decisions -- and opportunities -- as they meet with architects and contractors about replacement homes. On Wednesday 21 February at 7 p.m., KZYX Mendocino Works welcomed Adam Goldberg of the Solar Living Institute for a conversation about resilient, sustainable and innovative rebuilding. We explored strategies for building homes that are far more resilient and fire-retardant, while taking advantage of a huge range of sustainability options that can make a home far more energy efficient -- even energy neutral -- at prices comparable to conventional construction.

ResolutionCare Indiegogo campaign

Here in largely rural Mendocino, is it possible to grow old with grace and dignity in one's own home, especially for those with chronic illnesses? An innovative organization in Humboldt county thinks it has the answer, and it's bringing the model to Mendocino County. On Wednesday 7 February, KZYX Mendocino Works interviewed Dr Michael Fratkin, founder and president of ResolutionCare, a community-based in-home palliative care organization, and Lynn Dress-Meadows, who is working with Dr Fratkin to build the Mendocino Care Network.

What is Mendocino County attempting to achieve with proposed revisions of the Class K "alternative building code", which for four decades has enabled rural homesteaders to build their own safe and affordable dwellings? 

On Wednesday January 24 at 7 p.m., our public affairs program Mendocino Works explored the proposed Class K revisions and their implications for housing with Stephanie Gold of the Anderson Valley Housing Association; independent building code consultant Scott Ward, who as a county official inspected hundreds of Class K and conventional homes; and 5th District Supervisor Dan Hamburg, who sits on the Board of Supervisors' housing subcommittee. You can hear the full hourlong discussion by clicking this link.
